UK - A horse owner has hit out at “idiots” who let eight horses out of a field, prompting a three-hour rescue operation when one tumbled several feet into a hole.
Four-year-old cob mare Dolly was initially feared stolen after going missing from a field at Kinfauns in the early hours of Sunday morning.
She was found eight hours later in the narrow entrance of a wartime shelter 10 feet below the ground.
It took owner Hannah Pedgrift three and a half hours to coax the petrified pony into walking backwards along the passage and up some stairs to freedom.
The 18-year-old said police alerted her to the horses’ escape at 4.30am and that she suspected the gate had been left open deliberately.
